The HP Computer Museum has a 1973 2100A price list available:

The list shows memory prices both for factory installation and field 
installation.

As the museum is located in Australia, the prices are in Australian 
dollars.  One could convert these to US dollars by determining the exchange 
rate in 1973, or by comparing US prices for items in the Australian list 
from the 1973 HP catalog, which is available from the Vintage HP Archive:

For example, the 12972A tape subsystem lists for A$ 9920 and US$ 13400.
